Good God, Put The Beast To Sleep In The Minds Of Men Already

PLANTING SEEDS

SAGE answering cellphone.

SAGE

I'm going in now. 

(a beat) 
OK. 

SAGE opens door. SYLVIA JONES steps towards SAGE.

SYLVIA
(extending hand)
Mr. Hanson, please, follow me. 

SAGE and SYLVIA walk to office of TERRY JONES.


TERRY JONES
(shaking hand of SAGE)

We're good to go. 

McGillicuddy and Katzenberg will have the children arriving 
from foster homes from all over the County by weeks end.
We're talkin' over 2000 students attending this summer. 

SAGE
That's great. Did the shipment of microscopes arrive?

SYLVIA
Yes. The night before last.
The MacBook Airs arrived last night.
All under lock and key. 

TERRY JONES

The local school board still hasn't given their nod of approval. 

Threatening suit if we don't hire their union teachers. 

SAGE

I know. 

MAIDEN AMERICA is aware.
We'll talk later this week with our lawyers …
an update status in regards to all their shenanigans.
Definitely get back to you on that. 

SYLVIA

Can I get you some coffee? 

It's percolating now. 

SAGE
Yes. Thanks, SYLVIA. 

TERRY JONES

I want to thank you and the MAIDEN AMERICA, again, 
for all you've done. 

You really helped me to realize a heaven-sent plan 
to refocus the mission of my church. 

SAGE

Hey, dude. 

The West discovers the unknown methods and systems of cognition and…? 
(a beat) 
… the rest is gravy. 
Jesus is the dude known to be behind it all. 
For all time forward.
Mission accomplished. 

TERRY JONES
(chuckle)
We're like gods. 

SAGE
Like the gods, indeed.

SYLVIA enters office. Hands cup of coffee to SAGE.

SYLVIA
(chuckles)
Black. 

No sugar. 
Cup o' mud. 

SAGE
Thanks, SYLVIA. 
(a beat)
The MAIDEN AMERICA expects to have a report 
from her public relations and marketing dudes 
detailing strategy for going public 
with this school curriculum by the end of the month. 

From what I've heard it'll be modeled 
on how President Reagan and his crew 
threw that curve ball to the Ruskies, 

making them think and believe 
our laser technology was superior,
that they wouldn't've been able to keep up, 

averting an arms race and bringing Gorbachev 
and his crew to disarmament talks.

TERRY JONES
If Western minds are like the gods, and thus closer to
the will of the Creator having created Murgatroyd, then-

(a beat)

SAGE
Then every other religion purporting intimacy with the Creator is …?
well, they’re now playing second fiddle to the world. 

MAIDEN AMERICA and the crew are working on tweaking this train of thought to become more palatable.
